Hi, during the following sentence, from Charlie Hogle’s Earring” by Paul Theroux, would you please explain the meaning of the red part? Thanks a lot.

Hogle was completely correct. But I could not admit it without putting Horton into a vulnerable position and exposing him as petty and spiteful. After all, Horton’s was the only objection to the earring. But Horton was boss.
